Expansion makes it easier for entrepreneurs to start and grow small businesses throughout Canada
Press Release; Toronto, ON, October 9, 2019 -
Founded Technologies (www.founded.co), the award-winning legal automation company, today announced it has launched its platform in British Columbia and Alberta. With this expansion, Founded is the only fully automated legal solution in Canada that lets businesses start and grow all on one platform.
“Entrepreneurship is the backbone of our economy, with over 85% of all new jobs in Canada coming from small businesses,” says Shane Murphy, co-founder of Founded. “We’re thrilled to offer a solution out west that makes it easy and affordable to manage the legal side of building a business.”
Since launching in late-2017 in Ontario, Founded has quickly become the leading Canadian platform where entrepreneurs go to incorporate new companies, manage their ownership structure, and generate contracts and government filings. As Alberta and British Columbia rapidly diversify their economies, Founded has grown its footprint to make it easier for entrepreneurs to launch and scale innovative businesses.
In anticipation for expansion, Founded worked with select local businesses in British Columbia and Alberta to understand their legal needs. Patrick Bruns, co-founder of Yama Vans Inc., Alberta's premium builder of one of a kind adventure vans, was one of the first businesses to use Founded in Alberta. “We are always on the lookout for services that allow us to streamline administrative parts of our business and Founded was a perfect fit. The process was seamless, fast, and completed right at my fingertips. We also decided to manage our employee contracts and shareholders through Founded.”
Shaghayegh Taghipour, founder of Payvoice, a Vancouver based web application that helps online businesses setup and manage their recurring billing, used Founded to incorporate her business and manage ongoing company ownership. “Founded was the fastest way for me to incorporate my business. Their intuitive user experience and automation allowed me to complete the legal work in a matter of minutes and save money compared to a traditional law firm. I’m also able to make updates to our company instantly through Founded as we grow.”
Through its online platform, Founded acts as a company’s virtual legal department. By integrating with provincial registry services, Founded transforms processes that can take weeks and cost thousands of dollars to quick, paperless tasks that can be completely managed online. In only two years, Founded has serviced thousands of customers, and has used the Google Ads platform to understand what business owners need when they start a business, and how best to connect with them.
From solopreneurs to growing businesses, Founded’s industry-leading platform helps entrepreneurs start businesses, stay compliant and grow. In the first 9 months of 2019, tens of thousands of entrepreneurs used Founded’s platform to search over 70,000 business names for free. Led by a team of experienced software engineers and lawyers, Founded has received awards from the Canadian Bar Association, the Attorney General of Ontario, and professional services firm, PwC, for innovations in the delivery of legal services.
